Letters: Thank you for kind donations

Thank you to 10uit10 Skryfbehoeftes for their generous donation of boxes of packaging tape. These have been sent off this morning to the Hout Bay fire crisis volunteers who’ve been appealing for help nationally. Their needs change weekly but this week the call was for tape, as well as toiletries and other basic items, to…

Letters: Fantastic help from attendants

I would like to relate to you a wonderful experience my family and I had recently, after visiting some family in your neck of the woods! We three elderly women and my intellectually disabled son left Ballito around 7am on the morning of March 4. I was driving, and decided to pop in to a…

Letters: Mother tongue education is nonsense

Our country is in turmoil, even though it appears to be all fine and dandy. There are many under-currents of severe damage to the young people of our country. I refer particularly to the education system that is prevalent in totally government schools. The private and Model C schools are a blessing BUT how many…

Letters: Isn’t it ironic . . .

Regarding the outcry over Helen Zille’s tweet “For those claiming the legacy of colonialism was ONLY negative, think of our independent judiciary, transport infrastructure, piped water etc.”, may I ask what her crime was? What she stated is factually correct. Indeed, colonialism brought many benefits to Africa, including Christianity, medicine, infrastructure, education and more. Can…

Letters: Take your learner’s again, ma’am!

I would like to inform Ballito residents that traffic circles are not drive-throughs. You have to slow down and allow others into the circle. To the lady who shouted at me this morning saying she has right of way, Ma’am, you need to go for your learner’s license again. You cannot speed through a traffic…

Travel the arduous and complex life journey in harmony and friendship and respect your fellow human beings and the rest of God’s creation. Serve God by serving others. Forgive unconditionally whatever it…

Letters: Jobs for car guards?

Although I have lamented over the loss of the small town, personal vibe of Ballito I remind myself that the extensions to the Junction offer increased job opportunities, of which we are in desperate need. I do, however, wonder if the management of…

Letters: Choose an audiologist carefully

Your Two Bits of March 10 with reference to the hearing, strikes a chord in me. Up until 2004 I could still hear, but after going into theatre about six times in six months the last vestige of my hearing simply disappeared. Today I have to use hearing aids in both my ears and although…

Letters: Prompt service

A main water pipe burst outside Chaka’s Rock Chalets in Ocean Drive. I called the help line and spoke to a gentleman by the name of Ritesh who immediately dispatched a team to sort out the pipe. A team arrived literally 10 minutes after I logged the call and sorted the issue out. Thanks to…

Letters: Developing surfing for all

The developmental component of the sport of surfing has been an integral part of the Ballito Pro Presented by Billabong and is very much a priority for the event and KwaDukuza Council, to create opportunities for local children, especially those from previously disadvantaged areas, to develop within the sport of surfing and in addition the…
